Read Review
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
by Taylor Jenkins Reid
fiction
From The Jacket:In this entrancing novel “that speaks to the Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor in us all” (Kirkus Reviews), a legendary film actress reflects on her relentless rise to the top and the risks she took, the loves she lost, and the long-held secrets the public could never imagine. Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now? Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband has left her, and her professional life is going nowhere. Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career. Summoned to Evelyn’s luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ‘80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn’s story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways. “Heartbreaking, yet beautiful” (Jamie Blynn, Us Weekly), The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is “Tinseltown drama at its finest” (Redbook): a mesmerizing journey through the splendor of old Hollywood into the harsh realities of the present day as two women struggle with what it means—and what it costs—to face the truth.
With his compulsively unputdownable breakout novel about Islamic terror, Robert Donator (https://robertdonator.wordpress.com/) has penned a deeply moving and masterfully written story of human resilience and enduring love. It gently takes the unaware reader into the quicksand of her involvement in the struggles of the protagonist until it is too late. The reader soon finds herself waist deep in the quagmire of events that compels her to sink deeper as the succession of events gather a mind boggling pace of events that ends only when the book ends. https://www.amazon.in/dp/B072W11CR2

Evelyn Hugo has beauty, charm and radiates with confidence. So it’s no wonder she goes from the daughter of Cuban immigrants to Hollywood star in no time at all. This captivating story follows her journey as she falls down and gets back up many times over. I loved meeting all her husbands. She didn't always marry for love. Perfect woman's fiction. Highy recommend
